Joshua Redman is one of the greatest saxophonists of our time. He has guested Norway on several occasions, collaborated with Norwegian musicians, and played sell-out concerts at Oslo Jazz Festival and at Victoria – most recently in 2013. This year you can see him here performing in several different line-ups during the festival season, but if you wish to see him playing on this particular project together with Brian Blade, Ron Miles and Scott Colley, you’ll need to look in at the Oslo Jazz Festival.
A homage to both past and future, Joshua Redman’s Still Dreaming is a tribute to this father, the saxophonist Dewey Redman. The songs are inspired by his father’s Old and New Dreams quartet featuring Don Cherry, Charlie Haden and Ed Blackwell. To perform these numbers Redman has put together a veritable dream team consisting of Brian Blade on drums, Scott Colley on bass and Ron Miles on trumpet.
Their performance at Oslo Jazz Festival will be an intimate and exclusive concert at the Nasjonal Jazzscene Victoria. And it’s bound to be a sell-out!
